Serving Families and Children of Prisoners 

The Child’s Journey


In response to a rise in the number of cases of HIV in Rwanda, especially in adolescents, Prison Fellowship Rwanda has proactively partnered with local health organizations to provide education to The Child’s Journey beneficiaries on the causes and prevention of HIV. Caseworkers are also engaging beneficiaries in discussion regarding these topics during their home visits in an effort to ensure the children remain healthy and safe, two of the program’s key result areas.


Burkina Faso

The Prisoner’s Journey graduations provide excellent opportunity to promote PromisePath. In Burkina Faso, these events bring together prisoners, chaplains, representatives of the various religious denominations (Catholic and Muslim), representatives of the prison administration and other guests – providing a wonderful opportunity to promote PromisePath. Hear from a recent TPJ graduate about his gratitude for the program.

“I am in my fourth year of incarceration and like any parent, I was worried about the schooling of my three daughters. In December 2022, I participated in a TPJ event as a representative of the Muslim community in the large building. At the end of the program, we learned that the Prison Fellowship Burkina Faso has an educational program for children of prisoners. After the event, I met one of the managers to understand more about the program but was pessimistic because I am not a Christian. At the end of our interview, he let me know that Jesus accepts everyone and that my children can benefit from support even if they are Muslim. I am relieved because all my children received school kits and school uniforms and they were also invited to the Christmas party (Angel Tree) where they all received Christmas presents. My wife is also happy because it is the first time in our life that we have received such love from strangers. I still can’t get over it and now I have another image of Jesus.” – Diandé, Prisoner

He walked with his disciples, at the pace of being known and knowing them. Running is great, but you don’t encounter others at that pace. […]
